One of the most unknown critically endangered species on the planet is Papua New Guinea's Tenkile Tree Kangaroo (sometimes known as "Scott's tree-kangaroo"). The Tenkile Conservation Alliance has been working locally to make the Torricelli Mountain Range a protected area. Their work has largely involved helping local villages manage their natural resources, seek alternate sources of protein, and practice sustainable farming. Their work has helped double the population of Tenkile Tree Kangaroos in the past ten years, but numbers are still low. The TCA has the support of the Papua New Guinea government and locals, but still have a lot of work to do to protect the Tenkile's habitat.
Sign to show that you support the work TCA has been doing to save Tenkile Tree Kangaroos!
We are signing to thank the government of Papua New Guinea for helping support the Tenkile Conservation Alliance in their work to preserve critically endangered tree kangaroos. We know that the work the TCA is doing will take time to ensure that people living in the Torricelli Mountain Region firmly back plans for establishing a Conservation Area. We ask the government to do everything in its power to work with and support the TCA while they continue their initiatives.
